Want to Find a Great Real Estate Team at Lake Chapala

December 1, 2010

Hi Everyone,

The title of this article is of course a truism. Of course you want to find a great real estate team at Lake Chapala if at some point you decide to buy a home here.

But, there are teams and then there are teams. Some of the so called teams here don’t want to talk to you unless you’re ready to buy now or very close to now.

At ChapalaClub.com we think this is extremely short sighted.


The Dream Team is ready to help you decide if our area is right for you if and when you might be ready.

Frankly, if we don’t think you would like it here we’ll tell you so. That’s OK We understand it’s not right for everyone.

We believe in telling it like it is, even if that means we lose a sale.

Yes, we would rather lose a sale than make a sale if we think you might be unhappy here. Why would we not want to make a sale?

Well, simple really. If you buy a home here and after you live here you don’t like it and tell the world how unhappy you are, that your Realtor did not disclose something about the area …

or about the house you bought…

your complaint in the information age where you can reach out and tell the entire world how you feel about this or that Realtor on line would cost us many many sales.

It’s just enlightened self interest to lose a client that we believe would be unhappy here.

Permit me a very short story. I once had a client who decided against the area after visiting, but a friend who had come along for the ride later came back and bought a property from me. Now we’re friends and neighbors.

He said he liked the way I helped his friends without a bunch of hype and wanted me to help him.

Almost every Realtor gets the occasional nice testimonial, or the occasional complaint. I can honestly say, I’ve never had a client complaint since beginning my real estate career here in early 2003.

That’s over 7 years of complaint free service. Now, I’m not perfect as hard as I try, but I work at being better every day.

Here’s a recent example of my service.

 I've been meaning to write, but I seem to always get side-tracked.  Anyhow, we wanted to thank you for all of your help and assistance in finding and negotiating a terrific price (more like unbelievable) on our house.” 

That’s  because as an Exclusive Buyers Only Agent who doesn’t accept listings;I just represent potential buyers and it's my job to get terrific prices for my clients. Patrick continues….

 We are glad we are going to be one of your neighbors; we just know we are going to love Chapala and all it has to offer.  Also I cannot even begin to tell you how impressed we were with the services you and the staff at Lake Chapala Real Estate provided. 

 Not even here in the states does a real estate agency do all that you did for us (as I am sure you do for every home purchaser) including changing the phone and electricity into our name; there was nothing left for us to do except sign the closing docs and take keys at the closing. 

Kudos to you and Lake Chapala Real Estate!

 Thanks.     Patrick F. Baker
